Five Years In Iraq

Today is the five year anniversary of the US Invasion in Iraq. Whether you support this war or not, please take a moment out of your day to give thanks to the brave men and women who have sacrificed for our country.

And then bring them the fuck home.

It's hard to believe it's been FIVE YEARS! And it's like nothing has improved. Five years.

Yes, bring them home. It's time.

Yes, this war has gone on longer now than American involvement in WW 2!!

Time to end the war. But I also feel very strongly that we should be offering amnesty to like ... pretty much any Iraqi who wants to come here. We broke it, we can't fix it, the least we can do is let them move here.

I never supported this war. Now however I am really worried about leaving. Will we leave without any humanitarian efforts? Will we leave and create a vacuum like we did in Afghanistan - allowing hate to fester and then a force like the Al Queda to enter?

I like hearing that with a Democratic President withdrawal is on the horizon but I have yet to hear a plan to help that doesn't include weapons.

And a trillion spent when it could have gone to Green technolgies. Instead of fighting a war for oil (which we are) we could create new alternatives that will heal instead of hurt.

And it's so sad that many of us (myself included, and I'm anti-war) didn't realize it was an anniversery. I felt rather ashamed of myself. Shannon

If you would like to read about someone who is REALLY doing something to bring peace and hope to that region, go to WWW dot IKAT dot ORG and order a copy of "Three Cups of Tea". This post is a shameless plug for peace.
